The art of procrastination

Sometimes, the more I try to focus on doing something worthwhile, the more I get distracted and end up doing something completely unproductive – but I’m sure this happens to most people, at least, I hope it does!

On one such unproductive afternoon, whilst avoiding doing anything useful and wanting to try something different, I sploshed lovely blue watercolour onto some log slices, added some cute twinkly stars, and ta dah, my starry nights trio!

Ok, so there is a little more to it than sploshing the colours on – to start with, so so so many layers to get the lovely deep blues! But there isn’t too much more to it, which makes it so much fun 🙂

As a morning person (sort of), I wanted to try a few sunrises too, just to keep me on my toes!

I don’t think these are quite as effective as the night sky, but I think with some more practice, these could look quite cute!

As I had so much fun with my night skies, I wanted to try some galaxy inspired pieces sneaking in some pink and purple splodges and I think these might be my favourites yet.

I love these little starscapes! So pretty!

Next on my hit list are some constellation illustrations of the 12 star signs – starting with Taurus, of course!

I’m not quite sure what to do with these yet, possibly add them to my etsy shop, but for now I think they look pretty cute on my shelves. I’ve got a couple of logs drying in our kitchen almost ready to be sliced, so let me know if you think you’d be interested in buying some and I’ll get painting!
